diverse campus provides a better education. that was the court's holding. after the argument today it seems clear the court is not going to go and overrule that precedent but the problem many of the justices had is how do you know when you have enough diversity. the university of texas has an unusual system. it automatically admits anybody who graduates in the top 10% academically of any high school in texas. that gets a fair amount of diversity on campus because many of those schools tend to be racially more uniform, predominantly black or hispanic and tend to get diversity. the problem for perhaps the majority of the justices how do you know when there's enough diversity. what the school says is, we don't want merely diversity in numbers. we want african-american students who are interested in fencing and speaking greek and studying architecture and hispanic students who are great fencers or ballet dancers. we want diversity in other words within the mere racial numbers. and i think for a majority of the court the question is how do you know when you're there, how do you know whe

[applause] >> moderator: thank you very much, congresswoman sutton. congressman renacci no single party can have all the good ideas. what have you heard from your colleagues on the other side of the aisle that makes sense to you and what are you doing specifically to bring the government since the of gridlock to the nation's capital? renacci: you talked about my bipartisan group and i appreciate that. we got about dodd-frank and the runaway train. i wasn't even in congress at that time so it's interesting. the truth about the bipartisanship is we have to work on that partisanship. i am so proud

education. basically they admit the top 10% of every high school in the state. and that helps to get them diversity because the state -- the schools are de facto segregated. no other university uses that, so it's possible that the court just wants to look at that particular policy. if they do -- >> many people think they will expand it that this will really not just look at that particular policy where they admit the top 10% of every single school. but, in fact, that they will look at affirmative action overall and the makeup of the supreme court could have a very, you know, dramatic opinion pact on how that's going to happen. let me ask you a question between -- from what this woman is saying in this case, abigail noel fisher. there are people in my class with lower grades who weren't in all the activities i was in who are being accepted to u.t. and the only difference is the color of our skin. for an institution of higher learning to act this way makes no sense to me. do you think she's wrong about her position? >> well, i think it's really every university in the country, public and pr

either because they are frustrated or because they want to get more training or education. some people are finding jobs. economists have looked at different calculations of which is the better factor -- the bigger factor, or people dropping out or getting more education and training and my understanding is that there are equal roles being played by each for spirit -- each force. but there are definitely some dropping out. some of that is the baby boom generation starting to retire. it may not be a "dropping out," but people choosing to retire and leave their jobs. some older people may have lost their jobs and cannot find new ones and are taking early social security benefits. there is some of that. host: mr. r doane, the labor force participation -- mr. nardone, a labor force position rick, please explain this. guest: the take the people who are employed in those who are unemployed and combine them and you get what is called the labour force. divide that by the population in at 16 and over and you're of the force participation rate. is the proportion of the population that is either e
